The proposal: With the U.S. greenback falling in value, Councillor Howard Moscoe wants to ban the use of American coins in parking meters and on the TTC.
The stupid statement: “The city’s going to lose millions if it continues to accept them.”
The upgrade cost to reject non-Canadian currency: $450 per parking meter (there are 3,000 of them).
The likelihood that TTC employees are going to sort through the fare box: No chance in hell.
